Partitioning and history of interventions
The ample house (basement, ground floor, floor) was built of brick, on a small, rectangular batch, located at the bottom of the street, across the street from the Roman Catholic church. Due to the slope, to the NE facade the ground floor is overhead and has a partial basement. The building, in "L", has pedestrian access from Bastion Street, through the narrow gang in the left flank of the building and the access road from Manastirii Street, from the park between the church and the Turnul Cizmarilor. The entrance trough the gang features double curved vaults, pillars hired with double-arched springs. The upstairs staircase is located at the end of the gang, the five rooms on the floor with a cursory communication, located in the courtyard. The simple facades, rhythm of horizontal nuts, are executed in the ground floor plaster and upstairs panels.
Casa Georgius Krauss is part of the category of houses with a compact plan, namely the houses with 2-2 axes and short street facade. Buildings are presented as a compact volume. In the basement, the semicylindrical stone vault is generally preserved, and sometimes the traces of the previous wooden floors, and at the upper levels the living quarters or the workshops. This type appears to be the oldest and implies the initial absence of direct road access from the street or the existence of lateral access in the yard.

Old monument file
In the old pamphlet, written about 1963, the description of the ground floor is as follows: "The gang is connected to a storeroom and an inner courtyard that has access to the ground floor rooms, one of which is covered with a plasterboard, with cylindrical vaults with penetrations and one with a simple cylindrical bolt. The floor is covered with plastered wood floors ". The situation changes over time, so that in the Topography of Monuments in Transylvania the same ground floor is presented as follows: "On the ground floor there are three rooms to the street, with access from the gang and two to the courtyard with accesses from it.

Upstairs staircase
The upstairs staircase is located at the end of the gang, the five rooms on the floor with a cursory communication, located in the courtyard. Simple, rhythm made of horizontal nuts, are made in the ground floor plaster, and upstairs panels are retracted. Mainly the following types of houses are distinguished within the fortress, corresponding to the succession of the historic stages: the tower house, the compact plan, the house with a short street facade, the simple house with a shaft.
XIV Century
In the second half of the XIVth century, and especially in the XVth century, the development began vertically, and in the first half of the next century, probably in connection with the royal prescriptions of 1513 (when, among others, tax-exempt houses are all those who invest in the development of the dwellings in Fortress), the extension of the houses is also made in the public space, especially in the square of the Fortress Square.
This situation indicates that since the second half of the 14th century the fortress has exhausted the potential of land for the construction of houses, the existence of the house number 11, being thus possible, the semicylindrical vaulted cellar remaining the only witness of that stage.
